Price Unveils Blue Diamond Contender
King's Authority emerged as a genuine contender for next season's juvenile features when scoring a stylish debut win in the Christmas Season Plate (1100m) at Flemington on Saturday. Trainer Mick Price said the son of Snitzel will be aimed at the Gr1 Blue Diamond Stakes and Gr1 Golden Slipper in the autumn. "The main thing now is that he's won and picked up prize money, so we can get our timing right," price told racing.com. "He'll run in one of the (Blue Diamond) Preludes then the Blue Diamond and Golden Slipper." King's Authority (Snitzel-Amy's Glen, by Shamardal) was a $280,000 purchase by Sun Bloodstock at this year's Inglis Premier Yearling Sale.
